So hurricane Ike is making it's way to our fine city. It's time to batten down the hatches and tie down anything that ain't already nailed down. I'm gonna ride it out in my home. (I'm more inland away from the coastal storm surge.) I do expect heavy winds and I can probably bank on power loss. You could fart and we'd lose power.
They havn't made any official announcements yet on the Texans vs. Ravens game but they are supposed to have a decision by noon central time. If I hear anything about the game being postponed I'll let you know.
Good luck to my fellow Houstonians and Galveston residents! They have issued a mandatory evacuation for all of Galveston county. I hope you all heed the warning and get to higher ground.
Be safe, be smart, and stay high and dry! I'll check in later but I may be off for a few days depending on where Ike decides to make landfall.
